BH O Brother, Where Art Thou (113* d) RE: O Brother, Where Art Thou 27 Jan 01

Peter T has hit the nail on the proverbial head. The music IS the picture. All else is one glorious waste of time and self indulgence for the producers and the actors.

Sorry caricatures of real people---no depth or insight.

The Coen Bros. were interviewed on the radio recently and stated that they based this on the The Odyssey. They also pointed out that they had never read it---I guess they checked out the Cliff Notes with their simplistic rendiltions of everything in the film it makes perfect sense.

I have to admit that I have enjoyed most of their previous work---this is one of the few films where I can honestly say I just went to see a music video.
